Annual fee invoices were mailed out to all accredited programs during the summer. Annual fees are due by Dec. 31, 2012. Please email the office if you have not received your program’s invoice or if you have any questions.
The systematic implementation of the revised accreditation fee schedule began on July 1, 2012. According to the APA governance documents, the CoA is a self-supporting entity within APA. Due to higher operating costs, combined with the costs involved with transitioning to an online infrastructure, the CoA increased its fees. In order to minimize the increases for internships and postdoctoral programs, the fees for doctoral programs were increased based on a two-tier approach, contingent on program size. A minimal increase went into effect for internship and postdoctoral residency programs. Application fees (for programs submitting self-studies on or after Sept. 1, 2012) and appeal fees are now in effect and the increased annual fees will be billed in the 2013 invoice.
